Fairs, festivals and exhibitions

Demonstrate, show and explain

If you’re looking for a venue for your next exhibition then consider the Examination Schools vast North Schools and South Schools for a combined floor space of over 8,500 sq ft. From large academic conferences and exhibitions including poster board sessions, gin festivals, fashion shows to craft markets – we can cater for all. Use the stunning Grade II listed venue to show off and demonstrate your products or as the perfect space for a themed convention such as Oxford Comic Con. Combined with our location in the heart of the city the Examination Schools is a unique choice for your exhibition. Alternatively why not host a smaller sized exhibition in the fantastic surroundings of the Sheldonian Theatre or St Luke’s Chapel.
